MARY-CLARA SAUNDERS

Reflexology Therapist

“The very first thing I noticed for myself when I was a client in 2003 was the pain I had been living with since my childhood gradually went away with each session.  Eventually it never came back. The second thing I noticed was how Reflexology calmed and relaxed me. These two reactions blew me away! I knew I had to learn how to do this so I could help others who had suffered so long, like I had.”

Mary-Clara and her children moved to Niverville in 2013 and quickly fell in love with the town’s friendliness and quiet atmosphere.

Her passion for Reflexology therapy started in 2003 when she first experienced the modality for herself.  After suffering with many health complaints for years and was told by conventional medicine that she would “have to live with it” she sought out an unorthodox alternative that changed the direction of her life.

In October of 2005 she became certified in Foot Reflexology and became a member of the Reflexology Association of Canada.  A title she still holds today. Since then she has furthered her education to include Chi’n Reflexology which is a combination of auricular reflexology (ear) and meridian work on the hands, arms, lower legs and feet.  She also travelled to Halifax in 2010 to learn Thai Foot Massage. The last four years her passion has shifted to learning more about the science based, evidence based reflexology taught in other countries.

Mary-Clara’s passion for Reflexology, as well as her empathetic and compassionate nature is evident to those who meet her.  Her positivity and belief in one’s ability to overcome health challenges whether they be physical or mental/emotional is contagious. She is honoured to share her healing work with the residents of Niverville and surrounding communities.

Lynley knew that one day she would provide pelvic health rehabilitation to her community and is excited that now is the time!

In her personal time, Lynley enjoys spending time outside with her family going on walks, bike rides, and tobogganing in the winter. Through dedicated re-training, she has recently rediscovered her love for running and strength training.

Lynley holds a strong belief that our health is multifaceted and that rehabilitation happens when the whole person is considered.

DR. ROBERT LECKER

Optometrist  

Dr. Lecker has practiced optometry in Manitoba since 1976. At that time, Manitoba had no low vision services available so Dr. Lecker advocated for an optometric/interdisciplinary clinic at CNIB. Over the following 10 years, through his advocacy work, as well as numerous meetings with government and ophthalmology professionals, he was instrumental in the establishment of the optometric clinic still located at CNIB in Winnipeg.  

Dr. Lecker also helps to provide optometric services to people in remote Northern Manitoba communities through part-time practices in Churchill, Fisher River, Paungassi, and Little Grand Rapids. As well, he established an optometric triage service for the people of Lynn Lake, Manitoba nearly 25 years ago. 

Dr Robert Lecker was the recipient of the 2015 Lieutenant Governor iCare Award in Manitoba. 

He has proudly been providing Niverville and surrounding communities with premium vision care for over 40 years!
